Your destiny number, or expression number, is an idea in numerology that takes the letters of your birth name and derives meaning from them. This number also describes your purpose on earth, or the tasks that you need to accomplish in your lifetime. This expression number can also reveal your particular talents and strengths, abilities, and the kinds of things you will be attracted to in this life.
Numerologists believe that our destiny number and our names are energy manifested. The numerical value of our names describes the energy that has been put out into the universe by our very existence.
To find your destiny number, follow the following chart:
Finding Your Expression Number
Use your first, middle, and last names and write them out on a page. Then, take the number that corresponds with each letter and write that underneath the letter. Add each line for your first, middle, and last names together. Then, reduce each number to a single digit, unless the Master Numbers of 11, 22, or 33 come up. Add up all numbers until you get a single digit unless it is a Master Number.
Once you’ve found your Destiny Number, read the explanations for each number below:
